Did you ever seen the unique custom built of DKW F93?

Maybe not many people have seen the figure of this car before. The following unique car is a car made by a big-names German manufacturer who has a long history in the world's automotive.

So no wonder if the first time people see it surely they will feel amazed while saying, "Huh, what is it?" In our opinion it is a natural reaction, given it has an unusual shape. This was a restoration result based on the Audi big-names.

As quoted by Autozeitung, the Audi looks as if it has been put together arbitrarily from parts of a wide variety of cars. And therefore no longer fits into any known drawer. The Audi is neither an Auto Union 1000 (it did not have an American-style rear) nor is it the two-seat offshoot Auto Union 1000 SP.

In order to clarify which Audi is, after all, we have to take a big step into the past. It carries us to 1957. The nameplate of this mysterious DKW dates from this time. Incidentally, this name hides a brand of the manufacturer Auto Union (the amalgamation of the four brands Audi, DKW, Horch, and Wanderer.)

Back to the DKW, which left the factory in 1957 with the chassis number 66555613. The special appearance came later. This DKW F93 appeared in a book for the first time as early as 1969, when it was rebuilt, but was still called Auto Union S there. Which is demonstrably not true, as the Auto Union Veterans Club confirmed when asked for by a car media.

Well, it is a little bit confusing when looking at its present form. Actually, this car was originally known when starting its life as DKW F93. So it is a DKW 3 = 6 in the version of a two-door sedan, what the "F93" stands for. But even if the basic framework comes from DKW, the DKW F93 is adorned with the 'Braun body'.

This, in turn, is an in-house design named after its builder Günter Braun, made up of many different parts from other car brands. Under the hood of the DKW F93 there is no longer the standard engine, but the engine of the younger DKW F102. The 1.2-liter two-stroke three-cylinder engine delivers a good 20 horsepower with 60 HP more than the original engine in the DKW F93.

Other parts of other Auto Union are also found on the DKW F93, for example, the rear lights, indicators, and rear bumper which is taken from the Auto Union SP. This would clearly answer the question of the origin of this Audi, but one of these DKWs still leaves one confused. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTO ZEITUNG | VASK.NZ]
